Download Philippine National Ethical Guidelines for Health Research

Sometimes when the internet connection is slow, it is very difficult to download pdf files from Philippine government websites. Since many health students and professionals need to know these ethical guidelines when doing health research locally, I decided to have an alternate site for download through my blog.

These guidelines are not the product of my work. These are from the Philippine National Health Research system. I am just sharing this to disseminate the information regarding the importance of ethical considerations in health research. I am just assuming it is OK to share this document (to help disseminate the information) since it is being shared anyway by the Philippine Department of Science and Technology. I will be willing to remove this said document from my blog, should sharing through blogs is not allowed.

So here it is...
